Egalitarian mythos, reverse snobbery

https://bonald.wordpress.com/2015/09/24/the-problem-of-egalitarian-superiority/

It is.

The secret to egalitarianism’s success is that the superior people have been converted to egalitarianism.  They can’t straight-up admit this, of course, since the content of their creed is that there are no superior people, or at least that it has little connection to social power.  On the other hand, they don’t try very hard to deny something so gratifying to their egos.  Officially, IQ doesn’t measure anything, but they make sure you know that theirs are higher than the conservatives’.  Marriage is officially oppressive, but they like to remind us that they beat us on avoiding divorce and unwed pregnancy.  These claims are all more-or-less true.  Liberals dominate every profession because they are by-and-large superior…..

It’s counter-signalling snob. Reverse snobbery. And it’s entirely based on social power, which is inherited (this is why they deny HBD).

I’m too smart to believe in IQ people.

I inherit furniture but throw it out to buy Ikea.

I’ll get an internship I don’t need to be paid for by middle-class secondary school connections but I’ll go to University and treat it like a Booze Cruise.

I can afford to take a Gap Yah on my parent’s savings. You aren’t really human until you travel.

We don’t hate Europe, we love Eurotrash! Our own white trash, however….

Every ism is valid but classism is just silly, what’s with the chip on your shoulder?

They get to tell themselves they earned their privilege. And it’s permanent (nope!)…

Boy, are they in for a shock.

When will this country waterboard the socialists with their own champers?

If we’re all equal, they deserve their position and nobody can drag them down.

The test of today

http://meetingthemasters.blogspot.co.uk/2017/01/the-test-of-today.html

Of course, even love of one’s neighbour is only observed theoretically and as a means of signalling that you are on the right side. Incidentally, I find that loving your distant neighbour is now used as an excuse to pay less attention to your near one, demonstrating that love has little to do with it and is just used as an excuse to dismantle traditional structures of truth and rob them of their spiritually protective qualities.

So modern liberal doctrines might have some truth in them but it is the truth of a counterfeit rather than the genuine article. Indeed liberalism is best seen as precisely that, a counterfeit of Christianity, a Christianity flattened out, secularised and brought down to this world. It was very probably specifically designed to replace the real thing by apparently retaining the good bits

superficially

superficial Christianity

but throwing out the superstitions. In fact, it does the very opposite and keeps the shell while discarding the nut.

BYO nut.

But then those who oppose liberal doctrines must take care that they do not fall into the extreme of denying these have any validity at all, even on a relative level. If you oppose liberalism, as you should, you must not let that push you into the opposite extreme.

Keep philia.

Remember there are two commandments, love God and love man. The latter must be seen in the light of the former but if you neglect the latter then you become almost as bad as those who neglect or deny God. This too is part of the test of today. Don’t let the lies of the enemy lead you into the over-reaction of rejecting the reality of the truth he presents in a deformed and corrupted state….

FYI

there is now no excuse for being a Leftist, its falsity and its evil are there for all to see – in the foreground and in the background, in books and in our daily lives and face to face conversations.

Every single Left Wing prediction has failed. Count ’em.
Every. Single. One.

While a century, or two, ago the pretensions of atheism, materialism, radicalism, modernism etc. were superficially plausible – now they are not.

Assuming human beings have their eyes open.

Generally, I have found them to be walking around with both eyes shut.

They don’t want to see.

It would be inconvenient.

They might need to change and self-improve in real ways and actually give up things that are bad for them.

Not the January selfie model of self-improvement.

I’m considered very good-looking and even I think the selfie thing has gotten silly.

This is a time when those on the side of Good should not fear: fear is the motivation of evil, not Good. Evil is afraid because it is ultimately unnatural – a web of lies – and must be sustained artificially by energy, effort, control…”

Love the truth and hate the Father of Lies. Now..

Someone help me down from this pulpit.

Some charity

http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2018/01/blind-item-8-initiation-fee.html

Most foreign charities are brothels anyway.

I said the NGOs. Nobody ever listens.

Like, seriously, why does anyone look up to these awful people?

Search Jolie, Queen, Clooney, Beyonce, Markle… just Ctrl+F it.

I doubt the Larry thing will ever come out.

Link: Tolerance isn’t a virtue

http://www.pastormattrichard.com/2017/03/why-isnt-tolerance-christian-virtue.html

It has never been a virtue.

It has never been Christian.

It is trumpeted as a false form of charity. Charity, the virtue, doesn’t deprive.

Dear friends, we must keep in mind that tolerance is not a Christian virtue.  We have heard this before. It actually is a pagan one. (Believe it or not, it was actually Ghandi, not Christ, who coined some form of the phrase, “hate the sin, not the sinner.”) Indeed, the idea of tolerance is an ancient pagan idea, in fact, it is at least as ancient as Jezebel herself.  To the point, though, consider a moment how tolerance brought into Israel by Jezebel backfired. Consider how dangerous tolerance is. In other words, at first Jezebel’s pagan practices were permitted. Then they were accepted. And then anyone who dared challenge her pagan practices was killed.  Tragically, this is how false doctrine and pagan practices work.  Indeed, error typically emerges into the church and a culture in three stages.

They never ask you to tolerate goodness.

It is always the same.

Tolerate vice. Tolerate sin. Tolerate evil.

Why? Evildoers would rather continue unopposed.

If you want to play the scientism quote game, fine.

As the great Edmund Burke once said, for evil to succeed, it is only necessary for good men to do nothing.

Note: NOT Einstein.

Cowardice is frequently admonished in the Bible, along with the blasphemy of denial and other forms of ignorance, from the same root as to ignore.

https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/ignorans#Latin

To turn a blind eye.

To permit and allow without sanction.

Chaos. To allow pride. To fall from the grace of righteousness and moral probity, standards.

The answer, because tolerance is the opposite of repentance.

Simpletons: There is no evildoer, there is only evil.

K.

There is no murderer, there is only murder.
There is no rape gang, there is only rape.
There is no noun, only verb.
There is no human, there is only being.

Actually, shit, let me put that on a t-shirt.

Video: Who reads the papers?

Before fake news, there was Yes, Prime Minister. Often shortened to Yes, Minister.

While you’re rebooting House of Cards, try this on for size.

Mmm. Snug.

When the BBC had a better sense of humour.

Read Top comment.

According to the Guardian, jet lag is xenophobia.

Meanwhile, America is still catching up. But we humour them.

First fifteen seconds of this one too.

And maybe this.

It’s very manosphere topical. The gaslighters playing Freud.
